Directors Lounge Screening:
going all natural
Sunday, 13 December 2015
Dagie Brundert makes films like singer-songwriters compose songs: with an almost weekly regularity, inspired by the small occurrences of everyday life and always blended with the joys of life and with her own charm. For the artist, who has committed herself mostly to super-8 film, simplicity is a must. Simplicity of means, low budget in production and improvised settings.
It is no wonder that she would discover caffenol and other natural ingredients for her filmmaking, i.e. for the development of her films – often in combination with expired Super-8 films, some of which have been of stock for many years.
In a series of new films, Dagie Brundert thus explores the theme of
exotic developments with natural ingredients in films referring to
their own making. On one hand this would become a kind of minimalist
procedure, if it weren’t for the filmmaker’s captivating humour. On
the other hand it reflects one of the messages of Dagie: DIY and
appreciate the process of making!
We are delighted to present this new series of films by Dagie Brundert, which have been digitally mastered and edited, in combination with a number of old treasures, presented in original Super-8. Expect “Dagie at her Best” – the artist will present and comment on her own films. And of course, she will be available for Q&A.
